Yes, I had checked the properties before and the only info offered was the
location they were in and date of creation. I checked again anyway to see
if I missed anything. It says the type is a Quick Time picture. And when I
said it was created May of 2002, I was correct, but this time I noticed they
were "modified" in 1997.
The only reason I cared about finding out where or how I got them was that
that might lead to some sort of listing so I could make sense of them. As
they are they are a half gig of wasted space. I know I'm guilty of hiding
things in strange places on my hard drive every once in awhile, but normally
I recognize them.
If I could just view them as a slideshow or find a more fluid way of opening
them to see if I want to keep any, I would give them more of a look. But QT
only gives a pic at a time -open file, find it, open, close - repeat. A
real drag. Meanwhile I have plenty of space on the hard drive so I don't
have to dump them. They can sit for 2 more years.
